The room was just okay. Bathroom tub was somewhat gross. Bed felt lopsided, as the middle of the was sunken in, but the edge was not. This made it uncomfortable for two people to sleep on. The location is convenient though, as there are nearby restaurants and the Back Bay station is very close.

Although the building itself is very old, and the wifi was a bit spotty at times, the staff was very accommodating and there is a business center available for use 24/7. I also liked the fact that they had a security guard in the lobby at night to make sure everyone who was in the building belonged there, and the close proximity to both the Copley Square (green line) and Back Bay Area (orange line) subway lines.

Hotel is an older property, but well maintained. It is right next to Back Bay Station. Very convenient for those arriving by train. Short walk via indoor walkways to shops and restaurants of Prudential Center. Copley Square is one block away. Direct subway service via Orange Line to TD Garden. Noon checkout and baggage storage was a plus. Breakfast wasn't the greatest, but I didn't care. Really had a great time on this trip.

The woman at the front desk was very curt and unfriendly. Room was small. There is no restaurant and the front desk woman did not offer any help in finding places that deliver so had to venture out in the cold. Overall ok stay. For a hotel of this caliber, would be nice if staff was more courteous.

I was disappointed there was no bar, or even a vending machine. The clerk behind the desk was sweet, the other woman in the evening never took her eyes off her iphone. The room itself serves its purpose, but don't expect much. The room is clean but old and the furniture very worn. The windows could be opened (safety hazard?). But if you're not looking for more than a place to crash, this is in a decent location.

Older hotel now scheduled for demolition and will definitely close in April 2015 per employees. Provides the minimum. Staff quickly compensates for shortcomings [no luggage rack in room and insufficient heat leading to hotel providing portable and effective electric heater]. Will be replaced by a 32 story luxury boutique hotel as is today's custom.

The hotel was better than I expected. The hotel staffs were very nice to me. However, the room was not as good as the money I paid. First, the bathroom was not fully repair. It had some scratch in the bathtub. Second, In the first three nights, I had full layer of blankets, which good for me to choose when I slept. However, in the last night, it had only one thick blanket.

We came down from Maine for a night and weren't looking for anything fancy. Decent continental breakfast in the morning. They will store your luggage for the day even after you check out, which was nice, because we did not bring a car to Boston and were able to walk around unencumbered. The price was good and so was the location. Accessible from North Station via the orange line, only a few blocks from Copley Square and the green line. If you are on a budget and more interested in doing stuff in the city than hanging around the hotel, this would be a good fit for you.

I stayed at Boston Common for a few nights while on business in Boston. The location was terrific if you want or need to be right down town. For an older property the condition and cleanliness were good. My only real complaint is that parking in the adjacent garage (though discounted for hotel guests) is still pricey. Somewhat expected for the area but still added up.

The Boston Common Hotel is in an older hotel, just around the corner from Back Bay Station, and a block from Copley Square. Rooms are pretty basic, but they are adequate for a short stay, or for those traveling on a budget. The do offer a good continental breakfast in the light, airy breakfast room on the 5th floor. Although it wasn't advertised, I had internet access in my room. The is free internet in the business center off the lobby.

I stay any a lot of hotels/motels and I like something different, and this is it. It's basically across the street from Back Bay Station (Amtrak & the T), close to decent restaurants, and "clubby." Probably because it was once part of the University Club. Wifi doesn't reach all the rooms (at least not mine) but its fine in the lobby. I don't really mind having an excuse to disconnect after a long day. I would definitely go back again.

Having stayed in the Boston Common Hotel several times, I would have to say it is one of the better bargains in Boston. Reasonable rates, perfect location friendly staff. Yes, the hotel is old, but it is surprisingly quiet considering it sits in a busy part of town. Unlike many more expensive hotels in Boston, the walls are thick, and you aren't bothered by your neighbors at 3.00AM Well worth a try, would stay here any time

Boston Common is a good location just a block away from Copley Square and the trolley lines. The whole hotel was formerly The University Club, now mostly converted to a hotel. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Room was fairly clean, but old and rather tired, as was the bathroom. Complimentary breakfast was bread stuff, juice and coffee each day.

First of all, it's an old hotel. Hasn't been refreshed since the 70s. The worst was the bathroom! The bath mat was covering a thick layer of mold, just repulsive! They cleaned it but I can't never forget this, I had never seen this much mold in my life. The room smells like the carpet was never cleaned too, the opposite of fresh. I will not be back

We enjoyed the fact that the hotel was right in the middle of the Boston Common and close to everything. For location and convenience- I would say that was a huge plus. The hotel itself is very old, the rooms and facilities appear to be outdated. The rooms were mostly clean but the bathrooms felt unkempt because of their age. I.e.- the floors appeared so dirty/stained that niether of us wanted to step on them.

Bathroom was dated. Yellow tile everywhere and the door had been painted yellow but was scuffed and peeled in many places. Not enough outlets for today's traveler and the wifi was only available in common areas. But it was clean and comfortable and we'll - situated near places of interest.

Nice location, but not very welcoming. Kind of a DIY place - not a lot of staff, park on your own, etc.
